The shape responses of droplets of some functional fluids in alternating magnetic fields are investigated experimentally. The three kinds of magnetizable fluid drops, that is, magnetic fluid, magneto-rheological fluid, and magnetic compound fluid are investigated. The experimental results of the three kinds of functional fluid drops are compared to each other. It is found that the shape responses reflect cluster structure of particles in liquids.
